Shaking It Off
no secret of my feelings for the Bush administration. I’ve been disappointed since the election that put him in office, and I’ve gone from unhappy to disgusted over the last eight years. But history will surely Bush-bash thoroughly over the next few centuries, so there’s no reason for me to do it here, no matter how badly I feel the need to shake him off.
Obama, however, has been my candidate since the primaries, and I’m overjoyed to see him elected.
I borrowed my mom’s camera, a 12MP model one step up from my XTi, as well as her 100x400 lens. I got some great, crisp shots of them frolicking in the autumn woods. Echoes of Peter, Paul, and Mary there, but no mist today.
These photos also have a certain kind of Baywatch flair.
That’s Gus’s wake in the background, not a boat’s.
Skilled hydrodynamics experts will, however, notice Comet’s wake ahead of Gus.
